In recognition of the need for researchers to fully recognize social communities as contesting sites of different forms of power, the current study sets out to unravel the ways in which the local commu- nity force - specifically, the community-based ethnic education in a Chinese American community - is conditioned by broader social and cultural contexts at both local and global levels.

Employing qualitative data collected at a local Chinese American community in Northeast United States of America, the study explores how the community- based ethnic education has become a contesting site over which dif- ferent ideological shaping forces constantly struggle in order to influ- ence the thoughts and practices of the local community. While the transnational influences tend to operate through the flows of materi- als, people, and cultural products within multi-level ethnic networks, the domestic shaping forces often impact local ethnic education in a more direct and powerful way through hegemonic or “official” educa- tional institutions.
